The Great Outdoors!

The Great Outdoors!

Fall is in the air and as the air turns crisp and the leaves begin to fall my mind turns to camping.  There is a long tradition of camping in my family.  My husband has always been an avid outdoorsman, always ready for a hike or a fishing trip.

When our son was old enough he became a Boy Scout.  Of course that means lots of volunteer time for us and eventually my husband became Scoutmaster.  I loved setting up merit badge clinics on whatever the boys had an interest in.  I’d find local professionals to share their skills and knowledge with the group.

Scouting depends heavily on volunteers and it’s important to let them know how much they are appreciated.  I always sent our special guests and park rangers a thank you from the group on a hand made card made with an outdoors theme.

I’d always send my son a card to let him know how much I missed him when he went off to camp.  Usually my husband would tag along and take lots of photos of the boys and their adventures. 

We’d pour over the photos when they would get back from summer camp or a high adventure trip and eventually those photos would morph into personalized scrapbooks for the boys.

I can’t tell you how honored I’ve been to see books I’ve made proudly on display at Eagle Scout Ceremonies
